Many ways are slow, tend to crash on large collections of files, and/or do not produce HTML output which is reasonably small and readable. This command:
“ http://gnuwin32.sourceforge.net/packages/tree.htm”: http://gnuwin32.sourceforge.net/packages/tree.htm
ported from Linux to Windows, does quite well. Obviously the Linux native version is excellent. Apple-isms are not known to this writer. On Windows, install the above, and then run something like this:
tree --nolinks -T "SERVER_NAME: Name of the Share" -H "C:/Folder Name" "C:/Folder Name" > "C:\ReportLocation\SERVER_NAME - Name of the Share.html"
You’ll notice one oddity, “C:\Folder Name” included twice; this is a quirk, the -H doesn’t do anything because we’re using —nolinks, but if you want you can use this without —nolinks to build a clickabe page.
Permissions can be a problem. The running user has to be able to see all files. Running the command in administrative CMD may not be sufficient. If you have RMM, its command-line capability may well have enough.
Here’s an overview of some choice web browsers, as of this writing. It’s not comprehensive and not going to be, because there are a huge variety of web sites and related needs, there is quite a lot of new development going on, and related publicity is not coherent (and cannot be in today’s world…). The below are the experiences of this writer only, and he is well aware that reality is far larger than his experience:
‘paexec’. Highly functional and recommendable.
There is a utility, for Windows, Linux, and Mac, which will convert MBR disks to GPT without destroying data. (Please note that it does NOT preserve data if you’re using an “extended” partition!!!!) It is called “GPT fdisk”, and it is here:
Binaries for Windows can be downloaded here:
In Windows, gdisk.exe needs one parameter, which is a drive number followed by a colon. Drive numbers are not letters; they can be obtained using the GUI Disk Manager or using ‘list disk’ in DISKPART on the command line.

All you have to do to convert, is to run gdisk on a given drive:
say yes to all of the prompts, and then use the single command “w” for “write” the new partition table, and confirm. Then you will need to restart the “Virtual Disk” service if it’s running:
sc stop vds sc start vds
and then test your results using DISKPART from the command line; the GPT disks will be starred as such.

Previous favorites now come bundled with very unwanted adware. This one comes bundled with just the Google Toolbar, it works very well:
Chocolatey is a great way to get the fundamentals into a new install of Windows. First we install it:
@"%SystemRoot%\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\powershell.exe" -NoProfile -InputFormat None -ExecutionPolicy Bypass -Command "iex ((New-Object System.Net.WebClient).DownloadString('https://chocolatey.org/install.ps1'))" && SET "PATH=%PATH%;%ALLUSERSPROFILE%\chocolatey\bin"
And then we get everything we want in:
